EXTRA!!! A SNEAK PEEK YOU’LL FIND NOWHERE ELSE BUT RIGHT HERE!! EXCERPT FROM UNBOUND PURSUIT:

“I really like your home, Wyatt. I love that it has so many antiques in it,” Tal said.

He chuckled. “Thank God you aren’t calling me an antique yet.”

Tal burst out laughing.

All the women in the Lockwood kitchen turned their heads in unison, as if they’d rehearsed the move a hundred times before.

“Oh,” Wyatt drawled to them, “the woman I’m gonna marry is callin’ me an antique like what we have in our house here, Mom.”

Heat shot into Tal’s cheeks. She gasped, giving Wyatt an incredulous look. “I did not!” she protested loudly, giving him a severe, reproachful stare.

Wyatt gave her that boyish, innocent look he always did when he was up to no good.

Daisy chortled, drying her hands at the sink. “You gotta watch my son Wyatt, Tal. He’ll box you into a corner like a good quarter horse will corner a cow.”

Giving Tal a smug look, Wyatt said, “But you love me anyway? Antique or not?”

Tal gave him a dirty look. “You know I do. You are such an adversarial person!”

Mattie, his younger sister crowed. “Oh, yes he is! You should have grown up with him, Tal. He used to pull all kinds of pranks on Cathy and me just so he could hear us squeal.”

LINDSAY McKENNA’s FIRST DOG: BLACKIE
To get you started, let me tell you about my first memories of the first dog in my life.

His name was Blackie, and he was a black and white border collie. I was five years old at the time. I had two other siblings, age 4 and 1 year old at that time. I remember Blackie because we lived on an island in the Snake River near Ontario, Oregon. My parents were paid to take care of a sheep herd that lived on that island; hence Blackie was there when we arrived. His job was to take care of the herd of sheep, and keep them safe. The only way back and forth on that island was a long railroad trestle bridge across the river.

Blackie “herded” me around, even though I wasn’t a sheep, always at my side, never far from me or my siblings. It was only later that I found out that Border Collies herded sheep was instinctual. He was a very loving dog and my best friend. And he’ll always have a place in my heart and memory. Unfortunately, I have no photos of him. But here is one I grabbed off the internet, in case you don’t know what Border Collies look like😉.

Blackie was the first dog in my life and I was 5 years old at the time.

Blackie was the first dog in my life and I was 5 years old at the time.

EXCERPT Unbound Pursuit by Lindsay McKenna, 2B1, novella, Delos Series

“Tal Culver had turned around to watch Mattie Lockwood, who with swift, knowing precision had gone to work dumping the paint-filled water from the thirty jars, washing them, and turning them upside down to dry on tea towels she’d set on the countertop.

The back door opened and closed, getting Tal’s attention. The children could come and go through two different exits. The side door led to the playground. The rear door, near the sink where Mattie worked, was hidden from view by a large mudroom. The hair on the back of her neck rose, instantly making Tal focus her attention on the entrance.

What the hell? Normally that reaction served to warn her that there was danger nearby, and it wasn’t something Tal ignored. She was in Texas. In a kindergarten classroom. Why was she suddenly on high alert?

Mattie heard the door open and close, too. She barely looked up, busily washing out the Mason jars. She didn’t want to be late getting Tal back to the ranch. Her mother was making a special meal of leg of lamb tonight for the family, and she needed to get home to help her with making the salad and the mashed potatoes and gravy. She figured it was the parent of a child who had forgotten something in the classroom coming back to pick it up.

A dark shape appeared at the entrance. Mattie turned. She gasped.

The Mason jar in her hand slipped and fell to the floor, shattering.

“Mark!” The word came flying out of her mouth. Mattie’s heart pounded in her chest as she stared up into his narrowed gold-brown eyes. He wore a black Stetson, a white long-sleeved shirt with a black leather vest over it, jeans, and cowboy boots. His mouth . . . oh, lordy, his mouth . . . she remembered only too well how wonderful he was at kissing her.

She took a step back, her eyes huge as she stared in disbelief at him. He stood motionless, like a tense statue. Mark’s gaze shot to Tal and then back to her.

“Who’s this with you, Mattie?”

She hadn’t heard his voice in four months, that same low, sensual drawl of his that made her melt, made her lower body burn with need of him. Gulping, she jerked a look toward Tal. “That’s Tal Culver, my friend,” she managed to say, choked up. She turned toward him.

“What are you doing here?” Tears clogged her eyes but she refused to let them fall, straightening her spine, throwing back her shoulders, her chin jutting out, anger flowing through her along with her shock.

“I need to talk to you alone,” Mark growled. “Get rid of her?”

Mattie scowled. Anger took over. “Go to hell, Mark!” She jabbed her finger toward the door of the mudroom. “Just get the hell out of my life! How dare you come back into it! You think you can just waltz in here after being gone for months without a word?” Her voice was shaking, she was so angry and hurt. And he looked so delicious to her. He was half Chippewa Indian through his mother, who was now dead. He had his mother’s coppery skin, that shining short black hair, those glittering, intelligent wolf eyes, as she used to refer to them, a gold-brown mixture. His mouth thinned, relaxed a little. For a split second, Mattie thought he’d smiled, or that maybe some amusement had flittered across his narrowed gaze.

“I’ve been real busy, Mattie. That’s not the welcome I was hoping for.”

She gulped back her tears. “What the hell else did you expect?”

Mark shrugged lazily, lifting one shoulder, keeping his gaze pinned on Tal. The woman seemed like someone he wouldn’t want to mess with. Mark saw the look in her eyes, saw the fine tension in her body, and felt the energy around her. If she wasn’t law enforcement, then she was military. He met her gaze and hardened his look in her direction, willing her to stay right where she was. Missing nothing upon first perusal, Mark could quickly size up another person and know just how dangerous they were. This woman was damned dangerous, even though she wore a camel-colored pantsuit with a bright orange tee beneath it. She wore no makeup, her black hair lying like a shining cloak around her proud shoulders.

His gaze moved back to Mattie. “I need to talk to you,” he repeated.

Snorting vehemently, she snapped, “I want nothing to do with you, Mark!”

His gut clenched, his heart twisting with guilt and need of her. Mark tried to bury the pain he carried deep within him. He watched the flare of righteous anger in her slitted dark green eyes. Reining in the desire for her that was always with him, he rasped, “Okay, then here it is: you tell your father to keep his wranglers out of the northeast corner of your ranch two nights from now, Mattie.”

His voice dropped. “This isn’t a joke. You need to keep everyone out of that area.” He started to turn, stopped himself, lifting his head, meeting her tear-filled eyes. Less gruffly, the hardness in his gold-brown eyes dissolving, almost turning tender, he said, “Take good care of yourself, Mattie . . .”

Before Mattie could snarl at him, he turned on his heel and was gone. When the door slammed shut, she  jumped. She was breathing raggedly, her heart sledgehammering in her chest. Gulping, she looked at Tal.

“Are you okay?” she asked in a trembling tone.

Giving a slight nod, Tal said, “I’m fine. Is he gone?” She gestured with her chin toward where Mark had disappeared.

Turning, Mattie quickly walked out to the mudroom. Peering out the window, she saw nothing but the outskirts of Van Horn. It was as if Mark had never been there. But he had. She had goose bumps across her skin, and she absently rubbed her upper arms, feeling stunned by his sudden and unexpected presence.

She heard Tal get up, the chair scraping back against the tiled floor. Because of her ankle, she couldn’t move quickly, and Mattie hurried back and met her at the sink. “He’s gone.”

“Did you see where he went?”

Shaking her head, she whispered, “No . . . I looked, but he’s like a ghost. Just . . . gone.” Touching her brow, she added apologetically, “I’m so sorry, Tal. You didn’t need this. God, I didn’t need it either.”

ROMANCE MODEL JASON BACA TV interview goes VIRAL and the result! COVER REVEAL, SECRETS by Lindsay McKenna

August 23, 2016

FB size 975K SECRETS by Lindsay McKenna

Jason Aaron Baca, one of my romance cover models I use on the covers of my Delos Series books, did a TV interview on him breaking Fabio’s record of how many covers he was on. Jason passed him and now took the crown. ABC TV affiliate, KBSW in Salinas, California, took his interview on 8.16. He’d emailed me to tell me that he’d mentioned SECRETS, the book cover that he was to pose for at the station.

Well! The darned thing exploded and went viral! KBSW didn’t air the five minute interview until 8.18. But when they did? The viewership overwhelmed the station with positive calls about Jason’s fascinating interview (never mind that Jason has a body that any woman would like). So, KBSW then sent the interview to ALL ABC TV affiliates, to CNN and to Hearst Media!

http://www.ksbw.com/article/photos-romance-novel-cover-photos-of-jason-baca/1461627

Aol.com with HOLD ON

And of course, Jason and I had no idea what would happen.
It didn’t take long to find out. Jason emailed me on 8.19, saying that at least 25 ABC or other media stations in Canada and the USA, had snapped up the TV interview and was playing it for their audiences!
And then, CNN picked it up!

http://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2016/08/18/romance-novel-cover-model-breaks-fabios-record-pkg.ksbw

Then, Jason emailed me and asked if I could get the cover to SECRETS to him this Monday, 8.22. Plus, he wanted the cover up at Amazon, as well.

That was asking a LOT.

I’d barely got to the photo I wanted to use for the cover! That meant throwing my editorial team into fast forward at Mach 3 with their hair on fire! Tammy Seidick (http://tammyseidickdesign.com/) would have to create a fabulous cover (and Jason had already sent her the photo), like “yesterday.” I asked if she could get it to me by Saturday, 8.20 and I knew that was asking a lot. Tammy is one of the most popular graphic artists in romance cover creations, so it wasn’t like she was sitting around eating a bon bon with nothing else to do!

Then, I had to get a hold of Tricia Speed, my friend who handles all the uploads and computer work for me. it wasn’t like she wasn’t busy either! Not only did she need to get up a pre-order on two platforms, but I had to have a bunch of info on front/back matter on SECRETS to her so she could start the process. Further, there was a Copyright that had to be gotten, and then 2 ISBN’s for the eBook. And once I got all that to her, she had to cobble it together.

This takes time. And never mind it was a Friday night and she’s tired from working 5 days a week (so was I), but to have this kind of “out of the blue” thing blow up on us, was unprecedented for me and for my intrepid editorial staff.

Tammy and Tricia were Olympic champions on Friday. Tammy got me the cover on Friday, not Saturday and it’s a great cover! Tricia got the copyright, the ISBN’s, SECRETS then uploaded to amazon.

But there was no way to pull this off without a lot of darn good people dropping everything to help me get all this to Jason in time. I felt like I was riding a rocket, and I’m sure Tammy and Tricia felt the same way😉.

EXCERPT to HOLD ME by Lindsay McKenna, Delos Series, 8.11.16
Sequel to HOLD ON

Callie McKinley tried to stuff down her fears as she stood with her fiancé, Beau Gardner, a Delta Force Army sergeant, at the Butte, Montana airport. He was leaving on this cold January under clear skies, typical of a Montana winter morning. She felt his arm curved around her shoulders and took comfort in it, but it didn’t dissolve her growing terror as he prepared to complete his fifth tour in Afghanistan. Callie felt his fingers move soothingly up and down her upper arm as she leaned against his tall, hard body. Was he reading her mind? She tried to appear relaxed and calm, but inside she was drowning in a storm of anxiety.

People were making their way home from the Christmas and New Year holidays. Beau was dressed in civilian clothes and Callie didn’t think anyone in the bustling airport would know he was a deadly operator. He had saved her life late November when her civilian charity van was attacked by Taliban on the way to a “safe” Afghan village to render medical aid. She had been a devoted child care worker for Hope Charity, spending six months of every year in Kabul, the capital, where she assisted fifty orphaned Afghan babies and young children. She loved her work with them, even while knowing that Kabul wasn’t truly safe.

She sighed, resting her brow against Beau’s Levi’s jacket, closing her eyes and squeezing him around his trim waist. Instantly, Beau responded, dropping a light kiss on her hair and holding her a bit more tightly for a moment, as if to reassure her. He knew she was worried about his going back over there. His enlistment wasn’t up until June of this year and it was only January. Six months. Callie knew that in the winter, the Taliban attacks slowed down or stopped because the heavy snowfall didn’t allow the enemy to travel around the country very easily. They all headed back to Pakistan to wait until the spring thaw in April. Then, they would return to begin systematic attacks against anyone, Afghan, American, or otherwise, who did not share their beliefs.

“You doing okay?” Beau asked as he leaned down, his lips brushing the curve of her ear.
“I’m doing okay,” she lied. The last thing Callie wanted was to have Beau worry about her and not focus on his job in black ops. She heard a rumble in his broad chest.

“You’re such a beautiful fibber, Ms. McKinley, but I love you anyway.”

She absorbed his West Virginia drawl, soothed by the low, husky sound of his voice and feeling how much he loved her. Callie had thought she knew what love was after dating a series of “Mr. Wrongs.” Then, Beau, a twenty-seven-year-old Army Delta Force sergeant, had more or less crashed into her life when she was working in Kabul, changing it forever. Rousing herself, she lifted her head, angling it so she could meet his amused gray eyes focused solely on her. Lips twisting, she whispered, “I’m not lying, Beau. Well, maybe a little…”

“Hey, I know you. You’re a first-class worry wart, sweetheart. I’ll be fine,” he promised, dropping another kiss on her furrowed brow. “I’ll be home before you know it and I’ll meet you right here in this airport.” He lifted his head, angling his chin. “And Grandpa Graham will be here with you.”

http://www.tastybooktours.com/2016/05/secret-dream-delos-1b-by-lindsay-mckenna.html

Good luck!

And here’s an excerpt from the novella!

Publishing date: 7.25.16
Ebook, paperback and audio (Tantor Media, to come at a later announced date)
http://www.lindsaymckenna.com

“Steve Cassidy. Welcome, Mr. Jordan. We owe you a lot.” He gripped Cav’s hand, and choked out, “You saved our daughter, Lia’s life. Thank you…”

For a moment, Cav was stunned by the sudden kindness emanating from the farmer’s expression who was thin, wiry, sunburned and physically sinewy from the daily work he did. Gripping the farmer’s calloused roughened hand, he said, “Nice to meet you, sir. And I was just doing my job. Call me Cav?”

“Call me Steve.” He clapped him heartily on the back, still clasping his other hand. “And you’re a hero to us, son. Nothing less.” Steve released him, keeping his hand on Cav’s broad shoulder, watching Lia clinging to he mother, both of them in a tight, loving embrace with one another.

Embarrassed by such a show of emotions, Cav murmured, “Thank you, sir.”

Steve gave him an assessing look. “Just Steve will do.”
“Yes, sir….I mean, okay,” Cav stumbled. It was very different meeting people who were strangers, but this was Lia’s parents and he didn’t want to fuck this up for her. Awkwardly, he stood there, watching tears roll down Susan’s face. He wasn’t sure that Lia wasn’t crying too, such was the tight bond they shared. Obliquely, his mind leaped backward. Cav remembered the times his mother had cried. But they were tears of pain. Tears mingled with blood from her nose, a split lip or both after his father got done beating her up. How many times had Cav cried alone in his room wishing she would run away with him from his monster father?

Steve clapped him on the shoulder. “Let’s us guys go find your luggage, huh?” and he smiled a little.

Good idea! “Yes, sir—“

Steve laughed and patted him warmly on the back. “You’re staying a week with us, Cav. I’ll work that military side you out of you by then. Come on, let’s hunt up that luggage for our you and our Lia, eh?”

There was a male gruffness mingled with warmth to Steve that made Cav want to open up to the man. He had a deeply weathered face, his blue eyes the same color as Lia’s. The woman he loved had her mother’s same color of hair, her father’s sparkling, mischievous looking eyes and her smile. There was benevolence to Steve Cassidy and Cav automatically found himself wanting to be close to this man who exuded a male gentleness he rarely found in any man. “Thanks for coming to pick us up,” Cav said, noting that the baggage from their flight would be spit out by Carousel Two.

“We’ve been looking forward to seeing you two,” Steve said, standing with his hands on his hips, watching the luggage starting to be dropped off the conveyor belt. “Did you have a good flight?”

“Yes. It was quiet. That’s all I ask.”

“We don’t travel much,” he said. “With a farm, you can’t walk away from it, so I’m glad you came for a visit.”

Cav felt Steve’s genuine sincerity. He hooked a look over his shoulder, seeing Lia and her mother talking animatedly with one another as they walked toward them. Susan had given Lia her smile and her beauty, no question. He liked that the mother had hooked her arm around Lia’s waist and they walked closely, their affection for everyone to see. He knew Lia’s affection himself and already, he could see how happy she was at being home with her parents once more. They breathed even more life into her, if that was possible. Compared to the ghost of a person she was in Costa Rica months earlier, Cav was stunned at Lia’s natural radiance. She was sunshine to his darkened soul who craved her.

“Uh oh,” Steve murmured, grinning as he turned. “I’m about to get attacked.”

For a moment, the word put Cav on instant guard. But as he turned, he saw Steve opening his arms as Lia flew into them, her arms wide open, joy radiant on her face as she clung to her father. A lump formed in his throat as he watched Lia being swallowed up by the big man who kissed her hair, kissed that cheek that had that deep scar on it, his eyes only for his beaming daughter in his arms. His gaze flicked to Susan, who stood a few feet away, teary eyed, smiling, her lower lip trembling as she watched Lia with her doting father. It hurt to swallow and Cav turned away, remembering too much of the twisted and distorted family he’d somehow managed to survive. He’d never known a moment of affection from his father. Only his fist. His hatred. His anger always aimed at him.”
